Call for papers

The symposium aims to bring together educators, researchers and professionals under the common goal of developing and presenting computational design and production workflows and to open a debate on the potential of such techniques in delivering positive results for a more sustainable future. Through a bottom-up approach, the symposium aims to cover the range of computational processes and workflows in design, analysis, performance evaluation and in the context of physical production, using digital fabrication mechanisms. Whether design methodologies include parametric and generative design processes, performance driven or performance oriented approaches, optimization techniques, and so on or whether fabrication mechanisms include additive manufacturing, robotic fabrication, and so on. Proposals following similar directions and which correspond to the theme of the symposium are welcome and may be submitted.

Given the wide range of directions that such computational workflows could get, the symposium and the workshop attempt to cover both on a theoretical and on a practical level, different approaches ranging from digital design to prototyping and possible workflows of methodological investigation in-between, by connecting the virtual with the physical and vice versa towards a more sustainable future.
